You may find it very hard to keep moving. You may not want to keep moving. You may even forget why you're moving.
But you still must keep moving.
That's why habits are so important - for times when you're discouraged, unclear, uncertain, or just unsure of where things are going. Despite all that, you just have to keep moving.
If you don't, that's when life really takes control of you, versus you taking control of it.
All these outside forces might affect how you feel, but they shouldn't stop you from doing what you were doing when things were going well.
If you have a goal, and you start taking action toward it when things are going well, when you're feeling good and the sun is shining so to speak, that's great. But what about when you start to feel bad? What about when it gets cloudy and starts raining on your parade? Should you abandon your goal then?
That will inevitably happen, so why let that stop you from that original goal you set out to do? If it's inevitable that bumps will appear in the road, doesn't it become clear that obstacles don't get in the way of the path, but in fact, they are the path?
Easier said than done, I know. Easier written about than lived by. I agree.
But that doesn't change anything. It's still the truth, so let's work on living it. I have a lot of work to do, and I slip up constantly by straying away from the message I'm spreading. But I'm thankful that I'm at least aware of things and willing to learn about the important stuff, which involves going inward and taking a hard look at what's causing the pain in my life.
Hint, the cause has nothing to do with the outside world, and everything to do with my inside world.
So do me a favor and learn to start looking within yourself when you're having trouble. If you don't, there will always be something else down the road that gives you the same trouble as you're having now.
Fix it on the inside, and nothing will ever touch you again.
Live with substance!
